Celebrity Yacht Race - Competition Results
There were no winners for the Celebrity Yacht Race competition, so Buff's t-shirt is safe!
The right answer is as follows:
- the winner of the last America's Cup and current defender is Alinghi
- Alinghi's founder (and frequent helm) is the Swiss billionaire Ernestor Bertarelli
- Bertarelli's wife is ex Miss UK Kirsty Roper
- As well as modelling, Ms Roper also considered a career in music
- The song "Black Coffee" was originally written for her
- It was later re-written and released by the All Saints
- It is said Ms Roper had a hand in developing the song and it relates to Bertarelli.
So now you know!
